    Re: T.Rex!

    Mmmmm. Two things I learned from this thread:

    I should listen to T-Rex more often.
    Marc Bolan is so freaking hot.

    And some useful input:

    One in my series of a more dramatically painted line of pretties.

    I didn't know that DZ, thanks for the prehistory.

    I like simple rock and roll at times myself, and T-Rex is one of the bands that provides exactly that.(They are not my favorite band from the 70's glam/rock era though.)

    A lifestyle riff had also grown between Marc Bolan and Steve Peregrin Took. Despite his public persona, Marc preferred to live quietly with his girlfriend. Took was a wild party goer in London's underground scene.

    It was after Mickey Finn replaced Steve Took and the band electrified with the shortened name that T.Rex really hit its stride.

    Exactly :grinthumb
    Bolan also had that short-lived band John's Children, if I'm right, who weren't so succesful as later Bolan's bands.

    One of my favorite bands of the 70's. I also happen to dig Tanx which came out after Bolan and co. reached their peaked. Still some magic left on that album.

    I remember watching T.Rex on top of the pops as a kid, all the ladies loved Marc. Slider is a fantastic album I bought it on vinyl when I was a teen and again on cd a few years ago.

    Here's the "Hot Love" clip again. It's one of T.Rex's very best performances!
